New Pool

The weather was predicted to be very hot this week, so I thought it would be fun to buy a small backyard pool for the kids. We went to our local ACE Hardware to see if they had the pool I had in mind, and sure enough they had exactly what we needed. We went inside to pay for it and the gal sent someone out to help us put it in our car. The guy wouldn't let me tie it to my car and surprisingly it was too big to put inside my car. He was freaking out about how dangerous it is to tie it to your car! I live maybe 7 miles away on a non-freeway road, and he obviously wasn't aware of my superior knot tying skills! So another employee said he would drive it to my house for me. That was nice but not necessary. The other guy still insisted that we not tie it to my car! So the employee dropped it by in the afternoon. Despite the crazy people at the store, we have a fun inexpensive new backyard pool. And we are lovin' it. --emily


Hi! said...

The best $15.00 you'll spend this week. May I suggest putting several old towels, a folded blanket or an old sleeping bag you can wash and don't care that it gets wet under the pool. Experience reminds me that under that thin piece of plastic pool is a very hard slab of cement. Have fun.
Love, momAKAgrandma
